What is the release date of The Reckoning?

A release date for The Reckoning has yet to be officially announced at this point in time. It has been rumoured that the broadcaster are aiming to release the series in October 2022.

The miniseries is still still in process of being filmed, so let's hope the production remains on track.

Who is in the cast of The Reckoning (BBC TV Series)?

Executive producer Jeff Pope and his team have carefully curated their cast for the Jimmy Saville TV miniseries. The role of Jimmy Saville will be played by Steve Coogan.

He told the BBC in a recent interview that: “To play Jimmy Savile was not a decision I took lightly. “The Reckoning is a unique opportunity to give Savile’s survivors, the people who inspired this project, a voice. I feel sure that Steve Coogan’s powerful performance as Savile will create a debate around how the cult of celebrity cloaked him from scrutiny.”

Savile will be the most challenging role of Coogan's career. It will be fascinating how the drama will explore the way Savile used his celebrity and powerful connections to conceal his wrongdoings.

Gemma Jones, who's appeared in the BBC drama Gentleman Jack recently, has been confirmed to play the role of Agnes Kelly. So far the rest of the cast has not yet been confirmed.
